Advanced - The Sophie Swimsuit

Regular price $185.00 Sale

Sewing your own clothes doesn’t stop at the pool! Take control of your summer wardrobe and make your own bathing suit! The Sophie is a supportive & flattering suit with curvy seam lines and a 3 piece balconette cup. In 2 four hour sessions, you will be making your choice of a one piece or 2 piece.  Fabric not included. We don't carry swimsuit fabrics but you can check Spandex World, The Fabric Store has Liberty swimsuit fabrics (you have to call as they don't have it online) or Girl Charlee for some great choices. We will have all the other supplies ready for you in a kit! 

Note: You will need to arrange to collect your pattern and cut your fabric out before class. We've found the cutting out is very time consuming. If you can't collect your pattern, please let us know and we will mail it to you.  We encourage you to stop into the shop before class for help cutting out your fabric if needed.
